Aye. They’re into it.

They’re being asked about meat because the kids are about to try a host of meat and cheese substitutes in a series of vegan dishes. Naturally, some explanation is needed. Veganism is harder to explain to a kid than you might expect. (It’s also sometimes hard for adults.) It’s easy to say vegans don’t eat any product that comes from an animal, but how do you respond when the kid says, “What!? They don’t eat chocolate!”

The regulars in the “Kids Try” series are used to having the rug pulled from underneath them when they find out they’re eating something horrifying. (At least, to kids. Looking at you, vegetables.) So, while eating Chick’n Nuggets, it’s not surprising they’re skeptical when asked, “Would you believe me if I said there wasn’t meat in them?”
